My only fear is the bones pieces touching metal... I ruined a star bucks tumbler because the top plastic part was touching a metal spoon. I do hope this does not happen here. :unsure:

The is generally due to the drying phase and not the washing phase. If you disable that no problems at all as it will never get hot enough to have a chance to melt the plastic.

Yeah, I didn't use the drying phase...

Tonight I'm going to hit it up with some other colors with the airbrush. Since I'm planning on using this set for Frostgrave, there isn't going to be a whole lot of (any) green, which is what I'd usually use to hint at moss. Instead, I'll be going with browns. We'll see how that goes...

 

But yes, the airbrush makes rather short work of the terrain. So far at least...

DAVE,

 

Please do not make the mistake I did!

 

Clean up the mold lines before you go any farther and regret it!

 

I did.... (regret not doing it....)

I'm going over the ruins now... which were the mold likes that really bugged you? Most of them seem to be hidden fairly well.

Sorry to take so long...

Going over parts....

Archway- concave side line follows both arches close to edge. Tall side line up left hand side. Sort side, see my thread, I covered it with flock.

Top of Tower- outside from window ledge down to right around damaged section, then along 'lip', around to vertical damaged section. The broken window has a line as well.

Tower Base- All along exterior archways.

"Hoard Piece"- Concave side up arch on left.

Small Step- Convex side right corner into damaged area.

These are the problems that I see now that I look at mine, some I know I covered with the flocking...

Good Luck with yours!

 

George

 

They all bother me.... I should have treated this as a mini, not just the 'base'....

      Yay, finished in time to enter 2013 Dragon challenge with 6 hours to spare....
       
      He is 2 lbs 2.5 ounces of lead, so pretty straining on the wrists. The WIP is here : https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/52564-teronus-grenadier-dragon-wip/
      I will likely put him on a display base later.

      Everyone, meet Viridius.  
       
       

      He's a hefty boi.  No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see.   
      I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look.  Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him.   So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before.
       
      One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work.  The question is, what to do?  Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course)
       
      Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape.  The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled.  I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water.  I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing


       
      I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business.  So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history)

       
      I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.

      So I had this idea that Viridius was a forest dragon, and that his scales would color with the leaves of his trees.  I started on him about 6 months ago and finally finished him this weekend.  Big pictures so i'll spoiler most of them but I'm very happy with how he came out.  Going to be doing some additional work on my basing game in the future.
      Pictures are the best I can do at this time, he's way too big for my photo box, so I did my best to set up some canvases around to reflect light around as much as I could.

      I'm painting again after a looong absence.
       


      The colour scheme was inspired by Australian Frilled-neck Lizards and Thorny Devils. Base was extended with an MDF circle, cork, stones, and green stuff. I used my airbrush to prime it all and lay down the base colours, then lots of hand-painting, washing and drybrushing.

      My niece has her birthday in a week or so.  We were up visiting so I thought I would bring up a dragon I created for her.  I also had gotten the copper and alchemy set from scale 75 and kaphrixis is a copper dragon so...
       
      Here is the finished piece.  The body was done with copper from scale 75 mixed with some Jaquards dry copper pigments for effect. The wings were aquamarine mixed with the copper and that was the effect I got.  I thought the upper wings were gorgeous 
       
      Then I asked: where would a dragon keep his spellbook?  Answer: tatooed.to his wings of course!
       
      So enjoy! I think I will try this again and see if I can duplicate or improve the results.  I especially want to work on some tattoo effects.  I would ask for critique but the metal effect just doesn't come through the camera well.  In real life the lower scales are significantly darker than the upper scales (decayed metal vs new copper) but it just doesn't carry.
       
      And she got the mini today and loved it!
